Liturgical day: Thursday 1st of Advent

Gospel text (Mt 7,21.24-27): Jesus said to his disciples, «Anyone who hears these words of mine and acts accordingly is like a wise man, who built his house on rock. The rain poured, the rivers flooded, and the wind blew and struck that house, but it did not collapse because it was built on rock …». Jesus said to his disciples, «Not everyone who says to me: Lord! Lord! will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my heavenly Father.

»So, then, anyone who hears these words of mine and acts accordingly is like a wise man, who built his house on rock. The rain poured, the rivers flooded, and the wind blew and struck that house, but it did not collapse because it was built on rock. But anyone who hears these words of mine and does not act accordingly, is like a fool who built his house on sand. The rain poured, the rivers flooded, and the wind blew and struck that house; it collapsed, and what a terrible fall that was!».

Today Jesus requests that we conform to the will of His Father God. If you love your parents, you obey them; if you love God, then you want to obey God.

-At Christmas, we admire the obedience of the Son of God. To cure our disobedience, the Son of the Father was made man: Jesus of Nazareth, God and true man. He loved His Father’s will to the point of giving His life in the Cross for our salvation.
